On the 6th November, PC Shendy Blakemore, one of our school governors, visited the class to talk to parents and pupils about the importance of keeping safe on-line. She explained why Apps, games and social media sites have age restrictions. Pupils and parents found it very informative and it certainly made all that attended think about e-safety. Due to parental feedback, PC Shendy Blakemore is returning to school to present another E-safety talk, this will be for the whole of the school.
Year 6 Holocaust Trip– Thursday 2nd November 2017
Where to begin! The Holocaust Museum was such a memorable trip.
We started the day by following the journey of a young Jewish boy called Leo during WW2. He described the events that he and his family had to endure. We were able to walk through the different rooms in his house and actually feel all of his belongings– some of us even tried his family’s clothes on!
The afternoon was so moving. We listened to a testimony from Ruth Barnett, a Holocaust Survivor. She told us what she went through and how difficult her life had been. Ruth even compared her own experiences to the modern day with the refugees coming into Europe.
The children asked some great questions and she was really impressed by their knowledge!
Finally, we ended the trip with a moment’s silence to remember all the victims of the Holocaust. We all stood round the ‘Sho’ah’ (Hebrew for Holocaust) memorial and placed a stone in remembrance of each person who lost their life.
The Holocaust is a topic that is sensitive and delicate but highly important for children to learn about. The Year 6 pupils were extremely respectful and demonstrated Moorlands’ core values throughout the day. The children’s behaviour was exceptional and the trip had an impact on them ; it’s certainly a day we will never forget!
